Submission + - Microscopic plastic debris damaging marine life (bbc.co.uk)

goldaryn writes: Microscopic plastic debris from washing clothes is accumulating in the marine environment and could be entering the food chain, the BBC reports.

In order to identify how widespread the presence of microplastic was on shorelines, the team took samples from 18 beaches around the globe, including the UK, India and Singapore.

"We found that there was no sample from around the world that did not contain pieces of microplastic."
